That’s what taking risks is about

A big chunk of getting design out in the world is defending what you believe in, and we as a team did that. Thinking back, that’s one of the things Karen taught all semester long. In the moment though, I didn’t know whether we were exuding confidence, or digging our proposal’s grave. We had no choice though, we simply had to blaze through it. I suppose that’s what taking risks is about.

That’s Tony Chu, MFA candidate in Interaction Design, reflecting on his final presentation in Design Management class, created and taught by Karen McGrane.

For further reflections, don’t miss Tony’s ongoing writing, ongoing work, or The Common Class project, a collaboration where Tony covered Design Management in its entirety.

This post is part of an ongoing series to underscore some of the work and insights of the MFA Interaction Design candidates at the School of Visual Arts.
